It is hard to explain so here goes. Today on my way home, I stopped at a stop sign. When I accelerated everything was fine until I got to 35mph. All of a sudden it feels like it downshifts hard and the brakes are applied. I let off the gas and at about 25mph it feels like it downshifts again. I have to slow down to 15mph and it goes back to normal. If i accelerate again it will go up to 35 then does it again. If I try to accelerate after it does this the turbo spools up and the engine tries but can not speed up. It seems like the TC is locked up the whole time. I put it in 2nd gear and drove the rest of the way home at 25mph. When I got out of the truck I could smell tranny fluid. Please help me.
To remove the transmission do I need to remove the downpipe? should I remove the transfer case or take it out together? I dont have a tranny jack. I am going to call around an see if I can find a rental. Any ideas if I cant find one? One more question. Do the tc bolts only line up one way? On my 74 dodge the tc bolts only line up one way to the flexplate.
